Chakwera confident of credible Malawi fresh presidential elections 

Main challenger of President Peter Mutharika in next week’s Tuesday fresh presidential election, Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) says he is confident that re-run will be credible and set the nation on a new democratic course.

Chakwera: Confident that next week’s re-run will be credible

The 65-year-old opposition leader who overturned the results of Malawi’s presidential elections in a landmark legal case, said: “This time around we have more confidence that this election will be treated with the integrity it deserves.”

Chakwera said this in an interview reported by Agence France-Presse (AFP), one of the world’s great wire news services  that he it optimistic about the new Malawi Electoral Commission headed by High Judge Dr Chifundo Kachale

“This time around we have more confidence that this election will be treated with the integrity it deserves,” he said.

“Malawians must be respected, their rights must be respected. It is not a matter of who counts the votes, it should be a matter of every vote counting,” he said.

Chakwera’s MCP was once led by Independence  hero turned  dictator Kamuzu Banda, who ruled Malawi for 30 years until losing power in the first multi-party polls in 1994 to Bakili Muluzi.

This time around the MCP president leads a nine-party Tonse alliance.

People are “demanding change and they see us as the face of change. They see us as the face of a new Malawi that all of us can build together”, Chakwera said.

I implore you, if you are hungry and serious about winning in the FPE, to develop urgent and serious strategies to entice the almost 1 million registered voters (in the central region, as opposed to 0.6 million in the southern region) who failed to vote in the last election!!!!!!!!!

Spend money to manage those 5002 centres, obviously it won’t be that much compared to paying lawyers, we are tired of these DPP mafias..put mechanisms lest you end up hiring cadets who are looking at every opportunity to steal our vote again.

Good suggestion. Tonse needs to spend money and have people in all polling stations to monitor and guard our votes. With email and WhatsApp we can easily monitor and catch these thieves

You say this all the time. When you lose, the narrative changes. You will change tune again after the 23rd

Don’t just have confidence but rather put mechanisms in place to prevent vote rigging. What I dont understand with our opposition Parties is that we have only 5002 Polling Centres in Malawi why cant you put strong Monitors????? Get 15,000 Monitors & pay them adequately then deploy them in all Polling Stations then problem solved. We don’t need another stillbirth. Tatopa ndi izi.

31 years and mcp built one major road. Moved ty capital city to dusty and dry place instead of the lakeshore. 31 wasted years, huge resources wasted on internal security and perfecting regionalism and very little on development. I will choose between dpp and mbakuwaku.

Word!!! I’ve waited for someone to come up with a sensible comment, until you Sir, just put it exactly what I wanted to say. Kamuzu and his murderous MCP deprived this country from both economic and social development. Today we’re in economic turmoil pioneered by one selfish and self centered twat, who imposed draconian rules on the already poor masses. Kamuzu still has a lot of investments in countries like South Africa worth millions of dollars, but MCP, with its blood tinted glass, talk about DPP corruption, choose to ignore their own past shenanigans forgetting that there’s still a lot… Read more »
